Undeterred by her pregnancy complications, Minal Dakhave took up the challenge. Minal’s indomitable spirit has earned her an illustration of Goddess Durga in her name.
Dr. Subramanian Swamy’s organization, Virat Hindustan Sangam – West Bengal chapter conveys their heartfelt gratitude to Smt. Minal Dakhave Bhosale – The Indian woman who came up with the first COVID testing kit. Minal Dakhave Bhosale, who led from the front to deliver India’s first Coronavirus testing kit. Bhosale’s team has delivered the testing kit in a record time of six weeks and that too when she was in the last stage of pregnancy. Undeterred by her pregnancy complications, Bhosale took up the challenge head-on and gave the nation a new ray of hope. In order to show their gratitude, the VHS Bengal salutes Bhosale’s indomitable spirit and dedicates an illustration of Goddess Durga in her name.
The illustration is done by Indranil Banerjee, an acclaimed artist and former alumnus of the Govt. College of Art & Craft, Kolkata; whose area of expertise had been abstract illustration – delineations with lines & colors; had seemed to put his heart & soul by bringing a contemporary aesthetic temper to the illustration.
The artist always looks for inspiration in daily life and has been intrigued by the courage of Smt. Minal Dakhave. When the entire world was panicking under the threat of Novel Coronavirus, this woman while carrying her child in the womb, appeared as the Saviour – to save the nation from this deadly pandemic. Bhosale has appeared as the ray of hope to the nation and deserves a salute from every citizen of India. This is why Indranil has shown her as a reflection of Devi Durga because, in this pandemic, she has really acted as the Savior of Human Beings.
VHS West Bengal State President, Sumita Basu says, “In spite of this hard situation of COVID-19 pandemic, we, as Indians, are really proud of Smt. Minal Dakhave Bhosale, who has proved Dr. Subramanian Swamy’s theory of ‘Swadeshi‘ and taken our nation to a new height. This is the reason, VHS-Bengal felt that this brave lady needs to be applauded.”
